This paper presents 3D solid feature based modelling of a new design of a car alloy wheel derived from the ball pattern of the World Cup 2006 and golf clubs using a CAD system. Finite Element Analysis was applied to improve the new designs. Their dies were extracted from the parts/assemblies. The dies were scaled down to 20% of their original size using the CAD system, and these models were transferred into a CAM system. The machining processes were simulated for a three axis CNC mill controller using the CAM system. The tool paths were produced and the CNC programmes were generated by the modified postprocessor for controlling the CNC machine. The models of the dies of the new car alloy wheel and the golf clubs were produced using the modified CNC programmes with accurate shapes and reasonable surface finish. There is good potential for die making markets and industrial developments.
